In addition to the Products and Pricing, you can collect other information related to a specific Product or to the Project as a whole.


Addition Data Collection

There are multiple ways to collect this extra data. Those options are:

Additional Data Fields

Project level questions that are shown within the takeoff and estimate workflow and can be displayed on a client-facing proposal or on an internal-facing output.

Examples - Scope of Work comments, production team notes, project-level information such as Age of Building, what client is responsible for versus what company is responsible for.

When or Why to Use

  • You want to collect information about the project itself

  • In regards to showing this info, it can be displayed within the proposal output OR you hide it on the client proposal but save it to show to the internal audience

How to Use

  • Set up Additional Data Fields

  • Use them within the app

Custom Forms

Project level questions that are shown within a separate form and can be delivered alongside the takeoff report and diagram

Examples - Facility info form, Installation checklist

When or Why to Use
